for this opportunity and we will seize it as long as we seize it together. >> president obama is back in the country today returning his focus to the progressive agenda he outlined in his second inaugural address, on gun control, immigration, marriage equality, the president and the country and seven years ago, 63% of the country supported a pathway to citizenship. this year, that number has jumped nine points. a critical shift in public opinion and is not just immigration. today people are already lining up outside of the supreme court to show their support for marriage equality. this week, the court will hear arguments challenging the defense of marriage act and a ban on same-sex marriage. the court has evolved on this issue dramatically. 17 years ago, only 27% of americans were in favor of same-sex marriage. today, well over half the court supports marriage equality. sometimes change is slow. sometimes it's hard to see. sometimes it gets lost in the daily battles out of washington. but this is real. this is what progress looks like. the president and the country are winning the progressive argume

have maintained influence in the country, but the worse mistake was obama did not negotiate an agreement that would've allowed a residual american presence. we have no influence on the evolution of the country, which is a strategic linchpin. >> so little time, so many mistakes. first of all, in war, there are no unwounded veterans. one out of two americans has applied for disability benefits. 4488 dead. 31,965 wounded. 2 million iraqis displaced. 110,000 dead. a war of aggression. a lone ranger war without a coalition, without the u.s. seeking the cooperation of the united nations. a disaster in every respect. economically, diplomatically and morally. >> do you think the iraq are worse off? >> iraqi women are worse off. make no mistake about it. >> we agree to disagree on this one. paul ryan's budget passes again. >> i do not think bain capital would ever invest in a business plan for america that would spend less than 5% of its revenue on a growth agenda. >> we still have no budget from the president in violation of the law. he gets his ncaa bracket in on time, but no budge
, but obama did not travel to the country during his first term. >> that decision was widely considered a snub of israel, and many israelis view the u.s. leader with a bit of skepticism. winning over public opinion is a top priority on this trip along with the stalled middle east peace process and iran's nuclear peace program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understanda
of the country. high taxation and high debt are holding back the economy and the g.o.p. believes mr. obama is creating a nation at war with itself. the affluent vs. the nonaffluent. over the weekend senator ted cruze of texas, a conservative, delivered a very emotional speech at cpac. >> my father came from cuba. he had been in prison. he had been tortured in cuba. and he came to texas with nothing, with 100 in his underwear. didn't speak a word of english. washed dishes making 50 cents an hour. in someone had came up to that 18-year-old kid avenue as he was washing dishes and suggested to him that 55 years hence his son would be sworn into office as a united states senator representing the great state of texas. [ applause ] that would have been unimaginable. >> now mr. cruze says his dad made it on his own without government assistance. he worked hard and provide for his family and now his son has achieved the american dream. that's the way this country is supposed to work. but president obama himself has a very compelling story to tell. his father abandoned him. he was raised primarily b
, a country living with the threat of a nuclear iran possibly. president obama said the right things. during his visit about making sure iran does not get a nuclear weapon. at least one israeli leader is convinced if push comes to shove and military action is needed, the u.s. will be right alongside israel. amid the talk of war, though, the president is also pushing for peace between israelis and palestinians. that effort take a different tone on a specific issue today. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the president and reports from jerusalem. >> president obama spent a second day in jerusalem showing he is mending fences with israeli leaders to get upclose look at the dead sea scrolls and later trying to go around the leaders to appeal to the young people of israel to talk up peace. >> look to a future in which jews and muslims and christians can all live in peace and greater prosperity in this holy land. >> while also holding out the threat of war. again, vowing that the u.s. will have israel's back. by threatening possible military hip hop action military action
nominee. >> that's what we all thought a few years ago. >> bill: there is no barack obama in the country unless an illegal alien is going to run. >> we didn't think there was a barack obama then. >> bill: we knew barack obama was sitting in the senate. there is nobody there. >> we knew he was a rising star in the party. we didn't even know for sure when hillary seemed so unbeatable that he was even going to run. when he did everybody thought its his first time out. look, that aside. just too many things that can happen between now and the onset of the real political season to be so sure. she is in a strong democratic position in the democratic party. if she runs, she will be a formidable candidate for the nomination. having said that it's a big -- too big a stretch to say she will be some kind of a shoe in. look, if things go badly in the next several years. if the economy doesn't improve. let's assume for the sake of discussion it stays the way it is with persistent high unemployment and sluggish growth and so on. it's not at all clear the country will be in anywhere near ready to elect
in this trip. a recent poll from the israeli newspaper asked israelis to describe president obama's relationship with their country. 38% described him as being hostile. 33% called him favorable. and 14% said that president obama was indifferent toward them. you said at the top that president obama is not running for re-election. does he need popularity in israel for any reason right now? >> well, he's not run running for primeisrael. chuck hagel was not running for prime minister of israel either. it is important for israelis to think that the president has their back. even though he pushed the israelis and palestinians to make a peace deal i remember after he left obvious he did a mock poll in another newspapers who do you want to be the next prime minister clinton was polled up there pretty high. it does help for israelis to have a good warm feeling about the united states president. however at the moment when there is no peace process and nothing is happening i find the timing quizzical. it's almost a little bit unseemly. the tenth anniversary of iraq. what is going on in syria
and vibrant. as a matter? you have a cougar woman voted for obama. country moves to a net generation of leadership, bringarely reach back and in an older nominee. that was a factor for senator mccain running against president obama and partly a factor in governor romney running. .hat is an interesting dynamic at our potential field, there is a lot of young, fresh faces in the republican party. i think it would be very healthy. if you look at marco rubio, paul ryan, kelly ayotte, bobby jindal. very clear generational shift going on in the republican party moving forward. the democrats look like they might reach back. jackie's -- john kasick's numbers have been rising dramatically. i suspect you will see that with other governors as a welter it -- s well. that onlineatch at c-span dot org. c-span.org. coming up, president obama visits the west bank and jerusalem. then we will talk about the federal budget. journal,xt washington a look at the gun-control debate and the possibility of an assault weapons ban. discussion that revealed 32 members of congress hired relative to work other cam
that every single stock in each country involved a briefing memo. when we talk about places that president obama is and is not visiting, there is a personal interest for the nsc stocks -- staff. your memos you have to write, the fewer stops. it is interesting to compare the middle east and our role in it, then and now. "down the major issues that my colleagues have been talking about. the clearest difference is iraq, which i will not dwell on. iraq in january 2008 was one of the main themes of the trip. that is why you go to kuwait to visit camps there. that is different now since the u.s. withdrawal. looking at other issues, the israeli-palestinian issue, and a degenerate 2008,-- january 2008, there was a combination of promise and alarm about a peace practice. promise because of the annapolis conference and the negotiating process we were hoping to kick off at the time. of course we also had read after the conference a big dispute over some construction around to respond, and some things just do not change, but we managed to get over that after the president's trip and have a negotiating
in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other hand, it would really upset their base on gay marriage, even as 58% of americans accept gay marriage, the base of the republican party is in this very different place. so they don't know how to make that movement without upsetting their base, which is why you saw after that autopsy, which did make some comments about young people needing to see that the republican party was more open on issues of equality for the lgbt commu
saturday night across this country. >> now the victim in the case said she was too drunk to consent and only found out about the attack after seeing text messages and media. >>> president barack obama will visit israel on his first presidential trip to the country. they are getting ready for increased security calling it the most important visit since former president george bush's in 2009. the president has fence mening to do with israelis if he hopes to restore the middle east peace process. >>> thomas perez will meet with the press secretary. he was in charge of the justice department and he will be the first latino to be nominated for his cabinet. >>> today they plan to take up the issue to require i.d. and they will hear arguments on the issue of whether or not they must proof their sit is sent ship to vote. they will try keep illegal immigrants from voting. >> -- sal, let's look at the traffic, hey, sal. >>> good morning, traffic is look well around the bay area and we are off to a decent start and it looks good heading out to the mcarthur maze, also the morning commute is loo
we came into office. obama has shown a passionate respect for their country that is sweet music to israeli ears and many liked his push for peace. one newspaper declared "love has paid a royal visit." >> for our sons and daughters are not born to hate. they are taught to hate. so let us fill their young hearts with the same understanding and compassion that we hope others have for them. >> he mailed tribute to zionism at the grave of its modern founder. the new friendlier approach is already working and he's urging israeli prime minister netanyahu -- he's made a surprising apology to his turkish counterpart in 2009 obama's first big policy speech was in crier ro. -- cairo. >> and this cycle of suspicion and discord mustened. >> tonight the president arrived in jordan knowing many in the arab world watched that speech and waited and wapetted. in this trendy tafoya in the jordanian capital those i talked tofelt let down, further -- to felt let down. >> i think he is exactly like all the american presidents that preceded him. his visit came again to reinforce the american position

barack obama. now, it's easy to take for granted the progress that we've made as a country because we are forever looking to solve today's problems and as we continue to meet tomorrow's challenges as we shape our future. but what it is, it's definitely worthwhile to take a look back at the great works of our predecessor and the brave men and women who have paved the way for progress that we enjoy here in the 21st century. and if you look around, many of those men and women are right here with us in the rotunda today. we remember the people who braved police dogs and fire hoses turned against them by their own government officials in the south, people who believed that an idea -- believed in an idea that we're all created equal and that we're willing to risk and that we're willing to risk their life in the purchase soul of a lofty promise in america. today we celebrate black history month and the catalyst to progress that the emancipation proclamation as well as the march on washington provided us. we are familiar with the incarnation, whether it's the work of gandhi, mother theresa,
obama's attitude toward their country is hostile. only 10 percent view him as favorable. >> parking is a big issue in san francisco, right in we have so many stories this morning ahead, the parking fight dividing a san francisco neighborhood. >> a plane plunges to the ground and crabs -- crashes into the neighborhood. the passengers and the victims on the grounds and the investigation underway. >> he has not been mayor of san francisco for more than 20 years but this morning, you remember this face, someone is jumping a officials in indiana this morning are vetting the deadly crash of a private plane that slammed into a neighborhood. two of the four people in the plane were killed in year's crash. three more people on the ground are in the hospital. the pilot radioed he was having electrical problems before the crash. at least 200 people were evacuated for several hours from the neighborhood because of a gas leak caused bit crash. >> competing meetings are held today about changes in street parking along polk street. the transportation agency wants to eliminate some parking spots al
country. >> earlier today, president obama addressed 28 new americans at a naturalization ceremony held at the white house. in his remarks, the president highlighted a few members of the audience whose personal stories support his immigration push. this as the president's outside group, organizing for america, announced a new online effort in support of immigration reform. lawmakers in both houses of congress are still trying to work out a legislative fix on the issue, and the president's message to them was a little sharper. take a listen. >> we are making progress, but we've got to finish the job. because this issue is not new. everyone pretty much knows what's broken. everybody knows how to fix it. >> we're joined now by representative tony cardenas, democrat of california. congressman, you just heard the president saying today, and perhaps with a bit of frustration in his voice, that we know how to fix the immigration system. why haven't we been able to get this done already? >> i can't blame the president for being frustrated. he's been in washington for some time. i've only been t
- minority country, and in both 2008 and 2012, president obama won a combined 80 percent of the votes of all minority groups. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, community, or region of this country. so here are some actions we're taking, one, establish senior level advisory councils for hispanic, african american, and asian americans that will serve as working groups to share best practices and have a constant dialogue in each community. two, establish swearing-in citizenship teams to introduce new citizens to the gop after naturalization ceremonies. first impressions count. three, at the recommendation of the project, talk regularly and openly with groups with which we've had minimal contact in the past. lulac. the urban league. the naacp. naleo. la raza. four, work with state parties and sister committees to build a recruitment program for candidates. the report underscores the need for greater recruitment. five, hire communications staff to promote the minority leaders in our party and bolster our messaging efforts in publications that appeal to ethnic minority groups.
be much ado about nothing if not for the fact that trivial attacks on president obama are obscuring serious problems in this country. does the president live well in the white house? yes, he does. is there money wasted there? you bet there is. every other president in history has lived in comfort. it looks like president bush the younger had a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. with the nation now owing close to $17 trillion, i wish the president were more like pope francis, who has a cardinal in argentina rejected of all the lavish perks. mr. obama is entitled to protection, convenience and comfort as he he runs the nation. congresswoman bachmann and all the opponents of president obama should zero in on what's really important, the president's failure to deal with out-of-control spending and his core belief that america is not a fair country. that's what's important. not who is walking the presidential dog. by the way, that's the gardner who walks the dog. and he has always walked the dogs.
it's like john boehner's position, he can't do a deal with obama on the budget or the tea party throw him overboard. chris: before we get this here, can anyone think we can establish and hold in this country a policy of containment, have the weapons, warn not to use them? >> no. chris: the syrian question, do you get a sense that we're talking about under this president, barack obama, of using u.s. forces to do air strikes? are we that close? >> two key political figures in the senate this week called on the president to create a no fly zone over northern syria, carl levin, a democrat senator and senator john mccain. behind them are a growing number of people in the state department, in the administration. i think the principle opposition of that is the white house and the president himself. when you have drown a red line, if the evidence is clear that the syrians have used chemical weapons, he is going to have to act, chris. you shouldn't make any mistake. he has to act. he doesn't want to. he is afraid of getting drawn in. you need to watch very carefully what they say about the evi
to compel all of us to say what more can we do? >> reporter: president obama spent the first three days of his mid-east visit here in israel. he reaffirmed his commitment to the country's security and sat down through several meetings with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. >> reporter: president obama also used a speech to israeli students to make a direct appeal to peace with the palestinians. an israeli journalist says local reporters were skeptical about president obama's trip but watched him make a connection. >> he used all the tricks. he was so charm ing. he charmed all the israelis. >> reporter: he says he doesn't expect president obama back anytime soon unless there's a major breakthrough in israeli palestinian peace talks. >> this trip was the first foreign visit of the president's second term. >>> the family was crushed underneath the sign. >> something no one would ever expect at an airport. a 300-pound airport sign falls on them. >> many gathers south of rome hoping to catch another glimpse of a historic day for the pope. and why it was suddenly lights out tonight on the ba
are president obama and king abdullah of jordan. this is the final country that president obama will visit on his middle east trip. let's go to them now. >> all jordanians to welcome you and your distinguished delegation back here in jordan. i fondly remember your visit here several years ago when you were a senator, it is a great delight to welcome you back to jordan as the president of the united states enjoying your second term. we're delighted with the in-depth discussions that were very, very fruitful on the strategic and historic partnership. and you've been an old friend as has the united states for so many decades. we are very grateful, to you, sir, and the administration as well as congress and the american people for the continuous support that has been shown to jordan over so many years. and the u.s. assistance that has helped us throughout so many years, has allowed us to get jordan where we are today. and hopefully will continue to help us advance our shared goals of development, security and regional peace. we did have the opportunity to discuss syria. and obviously we are al
't get it. israel is a divided country that feels beseiged by terrorists, and whose politics are increasingly dictated by a small, hard-right minority. obama can't relate to that! [laughter] and if you need more proof that the president is no friend of israel, just do the math: back in 2007, president bush supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion.
